Also Listing:

The Orchard Project is the only organisation solely dedicated to the creation, rejuvenation and celebration of community orchards in the UK. 

We work primarily in cities and through our orchards, we hope to strengthen communities, improve peoples’ wellbeing and build resilience. We're dedicated to creating inspiring cities lush with nature-rich, well-cared-for, community-run orchards used and valued by a wide range of people that are producing and distributing substantial amounts of healthy fruit, and food produced from that fruit, for a significant number of people. 

After several years of success and growth we are now looking for a new chair and new trustees to join our board.

We are looking for new expertise and energy and, for the Chair role in particular, someone with substantial experience of governance either in the commercial or charity sector. 

This is an amazing opportunity to get under the hood of our ambitious and dynamic charity and help us with our mission. As a national charity we have reach, but are also small enough to be very agile with decision making. Your input will make a huge difference to our development. We have a lively and friendly Board and we are keen to welcome new people to engage in our journey.

The role are unremunerated, although reasonable expenses are paid. The annual commitment will be based around 4-6 Board meetings. We anticipate that the Chair role will need to commit a minimum of 12-15 days per year in fulfilling their role.

For an informal discussion about the roles, please Kath Rosen Co-CEO of The Orchard Project on 07977 457395


The closing date for applications is Monday September 11th 2017. However we will be monitoring applications as they come in and may appoint sooner than this if we find the right people. If you are interested, please apply soon.
